The conditions seem to be perfectly set for Liverpool to sign Arnaut Danjuma and he appears to be publicly begging for a transfer.
Speaking to Ziggo Sport in a recent interview, Danjuma seemingly sent a plea out to bigger clubs to come in and sign him.
“I was informed that Liverpool was following me closely,” Danjuma said.
“I will never lie and I think it is a bad quality if you are not ambitious. If a club appeared that offered me a higher platform to play in sports terms, I would always have to consider it.”
The 25-year-old states it comes down to ambition and given the season Liverpool are coming down from, he would be hard-pressed to find a more ambitious club.
Last month, Marca reported that Danjuma could be sold this summer after Villarreal failed to qualify for the 202/2023 Champions League season.
They finished 7th and effectively needed to win the tournament to appear in it again next season but they were eliminated in the semi-finals by none other than Liverpool.
Signing Danjuma, who is worth £45million, wouldn’t necessarily be the best way forward even if conditions seem perfect and the player is desperate for a move of that magnitude.
Jurgen Klopp needs to replace Sadio Mane if/when he joins Bayern Munich this summer. Signing another left-wing won’t solve the Reds’ problems.
Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino, who will likely leave the club at the end of next season, are Klopp’s only centre-forwards heading into next season.
Assuming Mane leaves that is.
Without the Senegal attacker and Divock Origi, who has played his last game for the Reds, Liverpool’s attacking depth looks bare all of a sudden.
I’m holding out for yet another transfer masterclass from the Reds but Michael Edwards, sporting director, has handed the reigns to Julian Ward as his contract is up at the end of the month.
Anfield Central understands that Liverpool have put out feelers to clubs and players all around Europe as they face replacing one of the most important players in the Jurgen Klopp era.
There is the feeling among those close to the club that finding the right replacement for Mane this summer could be one of the most decisive moments Klopp has had to face.
